The IB Diploma Programme (for Grade 11-12 students) is designed for students ages 16-19 who are academically motivated and desire the rigorous curriculum often as a preparation for post-secondary study. A student who completes the IB Diploma Programme will not only gain an enhanced set of organizational, writing, speaking and collaborative skills, but the IB graduate is actively recruited by most universities in Canada, the United States and the world. Students who complete an IB diploma will also achieve a Saskatchewan high school diploma.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme strives for excellence in preparing students for the 21st century. Saskatoon Public Schools values the fact that our community is very much part of the global consciousness. That global awareness—combined with scholarship and our values of tolerance, respect and compassion—fits perfectly with the International Baccalaureate organization's mission to encourage students to become active, well-rounded and influential citizens of their local and global communities.
It is important to be aware of the course options that will satisfy the prerequisites for the IB Diploma Programme. A pre-IB program at the Grade 9 or 10 levels will offer appropriate programming in preparation for the diploma program.
